Dr. Karl just loves science to pieces, and has been spreading the word and educating the Australian public for over thirty years.
Many will know Dr. Karl for his appearances across Australia’s media landscape over the last 30 years – from word in print, to TV, and radio, social media, regularly featuring on Australia’s most treasured channels like Triple J, and ABC Radio.
But some of his lesser-known work is on the psychological benefits of travel, and Travel DAZE is honoured to welcome him as a speaker where he’ll be teaching us about how travel makes us better humans, from mental growth to overall human happiness.
“Traveling is important for humans. We are communal creatures that are all of the same species, yet our location determines societal actions based off cultured and governmental laws,” Dr. Karl tells in his piece Traveling is important for mental growth and human happiness.
Dr. Karl knows (scientifically!) how travelling allows people to absorb different cultures, connect with loved ones, and build incredible relationships.
